DPL Book Club: The Anthropocene Reviewed

January 17 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

January’s selection is The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green.

From the publisher:

The Anthropocene is the current geologic age, in which humans have profoundly reshaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays, bestselling author John Green reviews different facets of the human-centered planet on a five-star scale‚ÄĒfrom the QWERTY keyboard and sunsets to Canada geese and Penguins of Madagascar. Funny, complex, and rich with detail, the  reviews chart the contradictions of contemporary humanity.

John Green’s gift for storytelling shines throughout this masterful collection. The Anthropocene Reviewed is an open-hearted exploration of the paths we forge and an unironic celebration of falling in love with the world.


Copies of the book will be available at Dormont Library in late December, and copies are also available to borrow via the Libby app.

The club meets at Dormont Public Library, 2950 West Liberty Ave. Members must be 21 or over to attend.
